Welcome to nursing at Butte College. Our programs offer three steps on the career ladder for nursing: Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), Licensed Vocational Nurse to Associate Degree Registered Nurse (LVN-RN), and Associate Degree Registered Nurse (RN).
Each of our programs is approved by the State of California Department of Consumer Affairs and prepares students for the examination required in California for licensure as an LVN or an ADN (RN).

All About Nursing Workshops
Once a month during the Fall and Spring semesters the Nursing Department offers a one-hour All About Nursing workshop in the Center for Academic Success (Learning Resource Center building) on the main campus. In the workshop we address program content, admission requirements, the application process, and advance planning for all three nursing programs. Whether you are just exploring possible careers or finishing your prerequisites, this is a great place to get all of your questions about our programs answered!
The Fall 2013 All About Nursing workshops are scheduled for the following dates and times:
Monday, September 9, 10:00 a.m.
Tuesday, October 22, 11:00 a.m.
Tuesday, November 12, 10:00 a.m.
Tuesday, December 10, 1:00 p.m.
It is not necessary to RSVP, but we recommend that you arrive a few minutes early--parking may not be readily available and these sessions are quite popular. If you are not currently a Butte student, please so advise the workshop monitor at the door when you arrive.
Hope to see you there!
